I guess I gotta to back to state-of-the-art 1993!

Pattern formation outside of equilibrium

1993

” The above theoretical methods are useful in analyzing “real pattern effects” such as the influence of external boundaries, or the formation and dynamics of defects in ideal structures. An important element in nonequilibrium systems is the appearance of deterministic chaos. A greal deal is known about systems with a small number of degrees of freedom displaying “temporal chaos,” where the structure of the phase space can be analyzed in detail. For spatially extended systems with many degrees of freedom, on the other hand, one is dealing with spatiotemporal chaos and appropriate methods of analysis need to be developed.”
